Tuesday Tipple

Fancy a fruity, delicate dry drink this evening? I know I do! 


Lets have a CONCORDE!


1 ounce gin
2 tsp apricot brandy
2 tsp Campari
2 tsp grenadine
 1 maraschino cherry for garnish.


Shake all the ingredients together, with ice cubes, in the shaker and strain into a cocktail glass (or a bucket, depends on what kind of day you're having I find!). Perch the cherry on the rim of the glass.


Settle back and relax to these guys...

Ooohhhh, I seem to have gotten here first for once, and will be very happy to join you for one of those... yes indeed, that would hit the spot after a thirsty night of blogging...

Do you think we should leave some for the others who are bound to be stumbling in here sooner or later ? Here, quick, let me have another while there's some left !
:-)

Owen - Oh no, there's plenty for those who are first in!

Actually, I should have mentioned that I will be missing in action for the next few Tuesdays...On the Road Again...

I.can.not.wait.

word veri is chagrin

I am chagrin[ed] with Owen wanting to have ALL the drinks for himself.

Dear Violet Sky,
It's not that I'm really such a greedy sod, as the Saj would say, I was just worried that Louciao would get here before me, and if that happened, you can be fairly sure there would be none left for the rest of us... and odd, she is late today... Oh Sister, where art thou ? Thought she would have smelled the apricot brandy in the air and been here in a flash...

And sister Saj, if you are going to be leaving again, please do leave a keg of tipples out for us, ok ?

VioletSky said...

Anyway, it is no fun drinking alone... and Saj will be away. plenty of time for preposting (and one needs a good tipple for watching those Flight of the Conchord boys!)

Violet - Roll on 11 May then eh? I'm sure Owen will let you have SOME of the quaffing...

Owen - I have no idea how to 'pre-post'....

Steve - s'right...hic.

When you are writing your post, on the bottom left side is "post options", click on that, and the date and time will pop up. You can then change the date to the future and have the post scheduled to appear whenever you want.

Dang! I got my head stuck in the bucket trying to lick up the dregs. That's what I get for arriving so late to the party. The bucket really lends a nice echo chamber effect to the funkalicious music video, though. My daughter showed me some of the tv shows from those guys. Way funny! Hadn't seen this one before.

The Sagittarian said...

Violet - thanks for that, I'll give it a go!

Louciao- well obviously I tried to keep some for you...but then it looked like it was going off so I decided the best option was to finish it off!
